In episode 6, the clip showing Buzz Aldrin descending the ladder was obviously taken from episode 12. This is evident because a Lunar rover can be seen stowed on the LM, a feature that Apollo 11 did not have. Also, Neil Armstrong was not near the ladder of the LM, taking pictures of Aldrin, as in the real mission. See more »
[Voiceover, describing the Apollo 12 mission]
Flying with Pete and Dick was the best thing about the entire mission - we were a true team. Those men were, and are, my best friends.

This miniseries is fantastic. As a self titled space geek, I enjoyed every minute. Not only does it tell the story of how we got to the Moon, it tells about the individual astronauts and many who helped get them there. After Alan Shepard had his 15 minutes as the first American in space, JFK made it clear that we needed to get to the Moon by 1970. The mini series details every step of the way, touching on the Apollo 1 disaster, all the steps to getting to the Moon (staying in orbit, space walks, docking, etc), the development of the Lunar Modules, and the inevitable voyage of Apollo 11 that landed on the Moon. I especially enjoyed Dave Foley as Al Bean, an astronaut on Apollo 12 (the funny episode). From the Earth to the Moon also details the NASA/press relationship, astronaut training, the astronaut wives, etc. It's such details and perspective that make this stand out as an amazing miniseries. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about the Apollo program. Truly an amazing story of arguably the greatest technological achievement of man to date.
